UNITED KINGDOM: A neonatal nurse in Britain was held for brutally killing seven infants and attempting to kill 10 others. According to the British prosecutor, the alleged nurse deliberately killed two children with insulin. Reportedly, she is booked under custody for ruthlessly murdering five baby boys and two girls.

The alleged nurse is Lucy Letby, a 32-year-old lady who worked at the Countess of Chester Hospital in northwest England from 2015 to 2016. The case was previously closed and Letby was declared not guilty, but the case has again reopened at the Manchester Crown Court.

During the opening of the case trial, Nick Johnson said that in 2015 the hospital witnessed a sudden rise in infant deaths, suffering from “serious catastrophic collapses.”

When Johnson gave his statement to the jury, “Babies who had not been unstable at all suddenly deteriorated. Sometimes babies who had been sick but then were on the mend suddenly deteriorate for no apparent reason.”

According to him, when doctors couldn’t find a cause for such deaths, investigating officers were called in who conducted a review.

Shockingly, the report suggested someone in the neonatal unit had poisoned two infant boys with insulin just two days after they were born.

Both the boy and girl’s blood sugar levels dropped below average levels, but both have been brought back to normal with the help of the staff. However, if the probe hadn’t happened, then the babies couldn’t have been saved.

Johnson said Lucy allegedly targeted babies who were prematurely born. A boy was killed on the same day of his birth in June 2015.

Meanwhile, police are investigating the entire matter with the utmost priority. Letby was arrested three times in connection with the crime, before being charged in November 2020.
